Storyline

Just when her family starts believing that she is dead, and that they can expect a rich heritage, Tieta returns from São Paulo to her native village in Bahia, which she had been forced to leave long ago because of some involvement with a goat herd. Believed to be fabulously rich - and nobody knows how - she brings to the great disappointment of her family a young step-daughter and heir. With the arrival of Tieta turmoil enters into the life of her family and their fellow villagers. Most particularly into the life of her nephew - promised to the Church - and the young aspiring mayor. Written by Hartmut G. Ziche <hgz@ehess.fr>

This movie have a bit of all.
31 March 2005 | by OxygenNINOSee all my reviews

Great movie!!!!!!!!!1 got a little bit of all, comedy, erotic :) ,Drama, all in one, watch it i hope you like it, i know i do !!!!!!!!!!!!! good actors, well done, it catch you in the act and i realize Sônia Bragas is hot maybe it's not the youngest actress in the world but she is still hot. and the only advice is to watch another thing when is nephew fucks with another girl, it's grouse, , good director, cast, soundtrack, all its good, its weird but if you watch it relaxed you are going to like it as much as i do, have funny parts, and serious parts too, it's not for the whole family, the main actress show her nipples, watch it, and enjoy.
